Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is an effective surgical method that is less intrusive than traditional surgery. By using small incisions and instruments, we are able to create positive surgical outcomes that typically have minimal scarring, faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery in North Texas

Medical City Healthcare experts are leaders in robot-assisted surgery in North Texas.

Specially trained surgeons offer a wide range of minimally invasive, robot-assisted surgery options using the latest tools, technology and treatments, including single-site or single-incision surgeries. There are many potential benefits of robotic surgery, and we are pleased to offer these advanced surgical options to our patients.

Your choice for robotic surgery

At Medical City Healthcare, we are committed to providing advanced surgical services for patients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and beyond.

In 2021, the surgeons on the medical staff at Medical City Healthcare performed more robotic surgeries than any other health system in North Texas, according to data collected from the DFW Hospital Council and Texas Health Care Information Collective. The robotic surgery specialists at our hospitals work with multidisciplinary expert teams from related fields, including bariatric surgery, orthopedic care, women's health and cancer care.

Benefits of robotic surgery

Robotic technology allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery through small incisions, which can be roughly the size of a dime. The robotic system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments.

Benefits of robot-assisted surgery vary, depending on the procedure performed and other factors, may include:

For patients:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Reduced pain, discomfort and risk of infection
  • Quicker healing
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • More nerves spared
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities

For physicians:

  • Enhanced vision, precision and control
  • A 3D view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments with the ability to bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
